Um, hello? I mean, Hello!

So... (awkward pause) ... things OK with you? I mean, it's been a while since we've seen each other and... um...

Ok, let's stop beating around the bush. While I really appreciate you visiting my site, and I must say I am flattered that you'd take time out of your incredibly busy and important life to learn more about me, I have to admit I'm a bit surprised. I mean, there's really A LOT of material on the Internet that is WAY more interesting than learning about moi. Don't believe me?

Want to learn more about the best rock band on the face of the earth? Whelp, you can find out more and it's just one click away!!!

Having doubts? Did you know that Oklahoma is home to the annual World Champion Cow Chip Throw? Better yet, did you know that there are actually rules involved with appropriately throwing a cow paddy? Now THAT'S interesting!

You need more evidence? How about the "official" ingredients of 7 layer dip? Who knew there were so many options for the 7th layer??? Talk about free-will! Absolutely breathtaking...

YOU ARE GETTING SLEEPY, VERY SLEEPY... YOU WANT TO LEAVE JEFF'S SITE FOR SOMETHING MUCH MORE INTERESTING...

Still here? Man, you must be really desparate for entertainment. Oh well, I suppose I can tell you a bit about myself. I'm married with three amazing kiddos. We are believers in Jesus Christ, and strive to demonstrate that faith, and the Creator's breathtaking grace towards us, through our lives. I'm a decent guitar player, hacky bass player, fairly poor drummer, and can't really sing. Other than that, I'm a top notch musician. I rock on the cowbell.

I joined the School of Computing and Informatics at Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN, in August of 2012. Lipscomb is an excellent school in a number of ways, but I'm especially proud to be joining such an innovative department. We offer a number of top-notch and diverse undergraduate / graduate programs in IT. My immediate involvement will primarily be in the IT Management graduate program. Check it out and feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions about the program!

You are welcome to read more about my professional background by requesting a copy of my vita (e.g., resume). You can also connect to me on Facebook or LinkedIn, but don't expect much there either. You could also try talking to me. Now that's a novel idea...
